Support Forum, Can anyone help me better understand the definition of Compliance and why we would use it in our models either as a constraint or as an objective function? Should the value of the constraint be a 0 to 1 value or any larger number? Compliance I know is designated as Strain Energy...am I the one choosing the units for that value? Is it better used as a constraint or an objective? If I want to use it in a dual thermal/structural loading model, should I use compliance/temperature as the constraint/objective? I'm really just looking for more help on this. My supervisor is asking a lot of questions about it and I don't have many answers. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks. Dylan Stelzer
Hello All, I'm new to optimization, Can anyone explain me how Compliance, Strain energy and stiffness are related in aspects of optimization? Also, How is upper and lower bound values related to results what we get? For example, if I give upper bound of 0.8 for volume fraction constraint what does it signify? Can I use Maximize compliance as my objective if so under what conditions? I would be helpful if I get these answers so as to proceed further. Thanks in Advance....
